Fall is finally here, bringing with it all the sights and sounds and smells that are so familiar but bring with it a quiet sense of surprise and joy every year. At least for me. It is my favorite season, so maybe I am a bit biased. 🙂
The one thing that those around my neck of the woods can count on every year is that when the weather starts to cool, I start to BAKE! And cook. I enjoy both. But more than anything, I love to bake. Cakes, cookies, breads, muffins, pies…the list could go on. And I enjoy eating all of those just as much as I enjoy making them.
Each cook has their own style, their own way of doing things that works for them. To me, cooking is an art, and food is part of the creative process. Cooking is to be enjoyed, and if I am in a state where I can’t enjoy it, I don’t do it.
Thankfully, life has slowed down a bit for me lately, and after a pathetic absence from my kitchen the past few months, I find myself enjoying cooking more again. I’m making my old tried-and-true recipe favorites, and I’m looking for some new faves to add to that collection.
So, I thought I would ask you all: what are your favorite recipe sources? Cookbooks? Websites? Blogs? Fill my head with inspiration, and let’s cook together!
